aggressive stance against israel, then the obama administration is going to find it increasingly difficult to justify the assistance. now, is mr. morsi trying to play a useful role right now in brokering a cease-fire? i hope so. right now all of the parties are in cairo trying to do so, and if he's able to achieve that cease-fire, then mr. graham, senator graham should take a good, hard look at the path mr. morsi is trying to do his best. the jury is still out, but let's encourage mr. morsi to do the right thing. >> ambassador, let's talk in a lot of gaza and everything in the middle east, let's talk about the state of the state department and the delicate task of appointing a new secretary there. i think it's safe to say that hillary clinton's record has been a relatively good one and unt untarnished, although now she's coming under scrutiny for the benghazi affair. along with that, of course, susan rice is a controversial figure at this point not just because of benghazi, but folks like dana millbank coming out and questioning her qualifications. aside from that, you have john kerry who
. let's remember that in the first two years of the obama administration, the legislative record was historic. it was a very productive period, even though we're in the middle of an economic crisis, and the republicans were unified in their opposition. it was because democrats eventually got 60 votes, used cloture to cut off filibusters on every matter, and push some things through. >> with what you say, especially with congress, and especially, you say, people who are extremely ideological and have refused to work with this administration, your words. at this rate, do you think that an agreement can be reached before we go over the so-called fiscal cliff? >> i am confident an agreement will be reached to reduce our deficits over the next ten years and stabilize our debt. what i can't tell you is, is exactly when and how it will come about. >> thomas mann, thank you. >> happy to be with you. >>> it is lung cancer awareness month and now more than ever, lung cancer patients have reason to have hope for survival. ahead, former nfl linebacker chris draft shares the heartbreaking sto
as one of the most popular members of the obama administration. clinton talks about how she's been in the political spotlight for 20 years. and she wants her life back. fair enough. says she wants to sleep, relax. okay. but what about after that? while hillary clinton has repeatedly said she won't run for president again, this is the same woman who says politics is in her dna. she is after all a clinton. and with a resume that includes secretary of state, senator, first lady, well, a democratic nomination is probably hers for the taking if she wants it. vice president joe biden's keeping the door open to a possible 2016 presidential run although he recently acknowledged it might depend on the economy. a memo to the vice president might also depend on hillary clinton. here's the question, is hillary clinton the answer? go to cnn.com/caffertyfile or go to our post on "the situation room" facebook page. never too early to start speculation. >> special for those of us who are political news junkies. i've been saying for a while no inside information. i suspect she still has that passio
's something china is watching very closely. deidre has more. >> the obama's administration to choose southeast asia as the president's first foreign trip since winning re-election was greeted by some with surprise. after all, there are far bigger economies in asia that warrant his attention. the strategic importance of southeast asia in the region is in full focus with u.s. president obama's visit to myanmar and hk's visit out here to singapore. >> it's part of a region where progress has been slowed by insecurity and mistrust. but it doesn't have to be that way. as burma opens up and establishes new ties, it could become a commercial hub linking markets in india and bangladesh with southeast asia. >> analysts say china will be paying close attention to this visit highlighting the delicate struggle for power being played out in this region. >> all we would have to do is add vietnam and it would be a very clear signal about china improving relations with allies. certainly it's going to be some that china will be paying close attention to. >> pepsi, coca-cola and ge have already begun to invest
to trigger a promised review from the obama administration. the report notes that 69 similar petitions according to the alter net have garnered over 670,000 signatures from all 50 states. prompting a review that will no doubt consist of junior white house staffers enjoying a good laugh before placing them in a circular file. not to be left out someone offered another petition to the administration to strip the citizenship from everyone who signed the petition to secede and exile them. so it is good to know after the election and a decisive democratic victory that we are all united now and will never fight again. travis is calling us from chicago, illinois. good morning travis. you're on the "bill press show." welcome. >> caller: good morning, john. >> john: what a pleasure. >> caller: every time i hear all of this big uproar about benghazi thing, it makes me sick because out here in chicago we've got about 20 kids killing each other every weekend. most of them are innocent bystanders getting killed. there is a good handful
into the libya raid and the obama administration's response to it. they also said they would try to block any attempt to nominate susan rice as the next secretary of state, describing her as unqualified for the job after she originally characterized the terror attack as a protest gone wrong. she went on the sunday shows including "meet the press" a couple days after the attack and said that. president obama in his news conference yesterday fired back at senators mccain and graham. >> let me say specifically about susan rice, she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> those republican senators were quick to respond to the
's in washington. jill, exactly what is the obama administration doing right now? >> reporter: well, they're on the phone, wolf. the president is in asia. he is making telephone calls and practically every senior administration person is doing the same thing. president obama calling israel, prime minister netanyahu, and egypt three times to president morsi. and president clinton calling the egyptians three times. i looked at the list, egypt, turkey, qatar, the french, ban ki-moon. and the whole entire is to press any country with any influence on either side but especially with the palestinians with gaza to put the pressure on them to stop the fighting. >> egypt is clearly a key player. they have influence with hamas. what's the u.s. doing in its talks with the egyptian government? >> reporter: again, they're putting as much pressure on them as they can. and there is some pressure because after all, the united states gives egypt about $450 million every year. so here's one expert that we talked to. this is how he explained how the egyptians can use their influence. >> egypt is the key to
, a conflict with initial reports from the obama administration. >> general petraeus' testimony today was that from the start he had told us that this was a terrorist attack, terrorist-involved from the start. i told him my questions, i had a different recollection of that, the overwhelming amount of evidence is that it was it arose out of a spontaneous demonstration and was not a terrorist attack. >> so it was u.n. ambassador susan rice who initially said the attack was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-muslim film posted online. she was defended. today, by senator dianne feinstein. >> what susan rice, ambassador rice did, was use talking points, put out originally by the cia, signed off by the intelligence community, and those talking points, as i understand it, were requested by the house committee, and all the intelligence community signed off on it. the key is that they were unclfrunclfr unclassified talking points at a very early stage. >> general mark kemet is in washington. thank you for joining us. the decision here seems to be between classified and unclassified information
of reporters. and i'm sure for the military and for the obama administration. the investigation, the federal investigation of how paula broadwell, his mistress, obtained all this classified information, all be it right now what we know is a pretty low level of classified information. how did she obtain it. did general petraeus give it to her. did he mishandle classified information is the central question and how that is answered will decide his fate. >> carol, thank you for joining us. >> thank you, gary. >> in today's welcome home segment, a u.s. marine who struggled to readjust to civilian life when he returned from iraq finds a way back to normal. he did it through ballet. he tells his story in his own words. >> i'm romonbaca. i'm a u.s. marine, iraq veteran. i'm also the director of the dance company. i started dancing at a smaller studio. that led to transitioning to larger studios. >> make sure your fingers are articulating. >> as typical american, i took a lot of things for granted. i wanted to see if i could do something totally different than being an artist. had something to prove
. the obama administration had a special envoy, the foremaner senator george mitchell, but he gave up his efforts about a year and a half or so ago, and there's been no u.s. serious -- no u.s. mediation since then, but i think with a new secretary of state and new administration, the president just re-elected there will be an intensified u.s. effort underway fairly soon. let's see if there's a cease-fire first. >> yeah, wolf, we had a chance to talk to george mitchell last week about some of his efforts in that area. what do you think? does tony blair think this new egyptian president of the muslim brotherhood, mohammed morsi will be somebody who really wants to create peace there, because we know he has a very different relationship with hamas than the former egyptian president. >> right. he is much more different than former president hosnni mubarak. he has a lot at stake right now, and he knows it, president mor of egypt. he is trying to improve his country, and he knows if egypt, for example, were to sever its peace treaty, that was seriously rupture the entire egyptian relationship w
to 100 republic lawmakers have written to president obama saying the administration's response to the attack makes now u.n. ambassador unfit for a promotion. it comes after word got out that the white house is considering nominating her to replace secretary of state hillary clinton. just days after the deadly attack in libya. ambassador rice went on the five sunday talk shows and described it as spontaneous protest over that video that insulted islam. u.s. officials now say it was actually a planned tear attack. the now former cia director david petraeus reportedly told congress the administration knew right away it was a terror attack. but according to those who heard the closed door testimony last week j jen petraeus claims the administration changed official story to remove references to terrorism. as to who changed it, that's unclear. lawmakers from both political parties say they are working to figure that out. some republicans point the finger at the white house accusing the administration of a coverup though at this point we have no evidence of that. the white house says
. >> talking about money down the drain. obama administration gave struggling car battery maker 1, 2, 3 systems nearly $1 million the same day it filed for bankruptcy. a company scored a 249-million-dollar grant back in 2009. and applebys is introducing some new spirited items to their menu. they include a chicken and portabella mushroom deal that uses cabernet denny glaze. pretzel with the beer cheese dip. delicious. you don't have to be 21 years or older either. the chain says the booze infused food is available to all ages. alli, it cooks off the alcohol, i do believe. no buzz included. >> i think you are right. you have a future as a waiter. >>. federal housing administration could be latest casualty that continues to limp to recovery. recent audit of the agency predicted loss of $16.3 billion at the end of 2013. for the terrorist full-time in 17 years the fha could need a bailout from taxpayers. so what does this mean for all of us? let's ask real estate expert kendra todd who joins us live from seattle. good morning, kendra. >> good morning. >> so as we just reported. the fha it was just
it on bush, last administration, not his fault. well, now it is his fault. >> reporter: in 2009, just after president obama inaugurated, we spent time in king county, we met charlotte mccauley. who told us -- >> i asked god that he would help him truly connect with him so he would know what god's heart was for the united states of america. >> reporter: and this is charlotte today at the women's club meeting. you told us four years ago that you hoped that the lord would help barack obama. do you think that happened? >> it does not appear so. >> reporter: and then something we have heard before. what does it bother you the most about the first term? >> not being honest about where he was born, and different like things like that. to me, he seems dishonest. >> reporter: he said he was born in hawaii. said that a long time. i'm wondering if, a, have you heard that? if you have, why don't you believe it? >> i just don't believe anything he says. >> reporter: there are certainly people in king county who don't believe the president about the country of his birth, and they also question his faith.
mccain that they are not going to cooperate with the second administration of barack obama, that they are going to stall out all of his nominations. this is their warning shot that they are going to filibuster her appointment and perhaps anybody else's. i think that's what it is. and here is the intelligence committee member. >> again, i'm really confused. the only point in contention really is whether or not this attack emerged from a protest and as soon as the information became clearer and it did take some time for that to happen, then that was perfectly clarified. there is absolutely -- it's inconceivable to me for anybody to speculate there would be a deliberate misleading of the american people. why would there be? it's perfectly inconsequential al. there was a spontaneous demonstration and the terrorist groups organized to take opportunistic advantage of it or not. in any case, there is no advantage to mislead the american people in that regard. i mean you have to have motivation behind it and there is none. and as soon as the intelligence became clearer and as a mem
personal. libya's become a battle between president obama and republican senator ginnie mae who insisted again today the administration knew quickly that al qaeda had attacked. >> and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> reporter: obama u.n. ambassador susan rice denied it, infuriating republicans. mike morrell on the hill today briefed some lawmakers on libya. one, a democrat said the account backed rice, that u.s. intelligence did give her the incorrect account that she passed on. >> this was a spontaneous protest that evolved into something militant, that was the best information they said they had at the time. >> reporter: there had been earlier attacks in benghazi, a warning from ambassador chris stevens the day he died. house republicans hammered the administration reaction. >> the people back at state here in washington continued to deny additional security. and they continued to do away with security that was already there. >> reporter: democrats pushed back -- >> to lay this
. but, martin, this situation sort of underscores how tough it is for president obama to carry the office of the presidency with him wherever he goes. as you just mentioned, he's taking this historic trip to southeast asia. this administration really trying to shift its focus away from the middle east, away from the wars in iraq and afghanistan, and to asia, to sort of be a counter balance to china in that region, but it's really a challenge. this violence flaring up in the middle east sort of underscores how challenging it really is. >> indeed. when he gets back, kristin, it's all about getting a deal to avoid the fiscal cliff or fiscal slope. yorn what your preference is. over the weekend the president reached out to the likes of warren buffett, jpmorgan chase ceo, jamie dimon. what was the purpose of those calls particularly? >> reporter: it was a continuation of what president obama had been doing all of last week which is to get stakeholders on board with him and on board with some of his policy proposals. also to listen to some of their proposals for how to avoid going ov
not have done and was able to do those things. second term, we'll see what barack obama is made of. the kind of things he does optionally and that's going to be fascinating to watch and find out. >> how do they play it to the administration to not be emboldened and not overly arrogant in wanting to be comprehensive in the next four years? >> you have a president that reads history. the news conference the other day, he says i'm familiar with the literature on second-term overreach. forgive me as saying so from a historian but he's learned a little from history. >> i'm sorry for our abbreviated time but we had breaking news today. have a great weekend. i'll see you back here monday at 11:00 eastern. until then find me on twitter @thomasaroberts. noig with alex wagner comes your way next. i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time for christmas? yeah, sure you can. great. where's your gift? uh... whew.
